  溫暖希望的春天.炙熱邪惡的夏天.藍色青春的秋天.冷冽奇異的冬天

  《四季奇譚》於一九八二年一推出,便拿下《紐約時報》暢銷書排行榜冠軍,該年度並在美國狂銷二十八萬冊,是年度排行第七的暢銷書。歷經二十餘載,在全球已翻譯成三十一種語言,同時也創下了四篇收錄小說中,就有三篇登上大銀幕的紀錄,除了膾炙人口的《刺激一九九五》外,還有描述迷戀德國納粹惡行的變態資優生詭異行為的《是誰和我玩遊戲》,以及童年好友一同探險、尋找屍體的《站在我這邊》等三部。

  《四季奇譚》由四個短篇所組成,一如四季的寒溫冷暖,史蒂芬.金以不同的主題、筆調,書寫出直指人性、擺蕩在真實與虛妄之間的精彩故事。如果你是標準的「史蒂芬‧金迷」,那麼《四季奇譚》絕對是必須收藏的經典;倘若你正要開始接觸史蒂芬.金,本書將讓你一頭栽進他的小說世界而無法自拔,一口氣體驗四篇如同四季變化般的人性希望與絕望之旅。

  A “hypnotic” (The New York Times Book Review) collection of four novellas from Stephen King bound together by the changing of seasons, each taking on the theme of a journey with strikingly different tones and characters.

  “The wondrous readability of his work, as well as the instant sense of communication with his characters, are what make Stephen King the consummate storyteller that he is,” hailed theHouston Chronicle about Different Seasons.

  This gripping collection begins with “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption,” in which an unjustly imprisoned convict seeks a strange and startling revenge—the basis for the Best Picture Academy Award-nominee The Shawshank Redemption. Next is “Apt Pupil,” the inspiration for the film of the same name about top high school student Todd Bowden and his obsession with the dark and deadly past of an older man in town. In “The Body,” four rambunctious young boys plunge through the façade of a small town and come face-to-face with life, death, and intimations of their own mortality. This novella became the movie Stand By Me. Finally, a disgraced woman is determined to triumph over death in “The Breathing Method.”
